Getting the Facts About Deep Sea Fishing
When you take your family deep sea fishing , you give them an experience they won’t soon forget. You spend a morning or afternoon catching fish, and eat your catch for dinner that night. If you are currently considering going deep sea fishing, read on to learn more about what deep sea fishing involves.
Reefs and Wrecks
Fish love to hide, whether it’s among the various plants and foliage under the sea or in reefs and shipwrecks. All kinds of fish hide in the pockets and crevices created by these structures, but you may find some fish on the outer edges of the reef or wreck, too. Whether you’re trying to catch the reef-dwelling fish or those on the outer edge, try anchoring the boat and dropping your bait near the structure.
Current and Temperature Variations
Whenever there is a disruption in the water current or temperature, nutrient-filled water is churned and brought up from the bottom. This water feeds the entire food chain of fish, and sends predatory fish into a frenzy. If your fishing charter can find these disruptions, you should have a lucrative fishing trip. Many times, you can locate these areas by seeing fish eating around or at the water’s surface. You can also look for birds flying and diving into the frenzy as a good indication.
Deep Sea Charters
Look for an accomplished fishing charter that can provide you and your family with a one-of-a-kind deep sea fishing experience. Ask the charter company and captain several questions to be sure you’re getting the experience you want. For example, you might ask, how long is the trip, and what will you be fishing for? If you want to keep the fish to eat, ask about the boat’s policy, and what kind of bait and lure is recommended.
